Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The West Chester Branch was a local passenger and freight railroad line owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) and later Penn Central. The line connected with the Philadelphia-Washington Main Line (Northeast Corridor) at Arsenal Junction near the University of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia-Chicago Main Line near Frazer, Pennsylvania. It is now called the Media/Elwyn Line and is owned by SEPTA.The branch comprised rail lines built by two companies in the 19th century. The West Chester Railroad (1831-1903) built a 9 miles (14 km) line from West Chester to Malvern. The line was leased by the PRR beginning in 1859, and the PRR relocated the Malvern end of the line to a junction at Frazer in 1880. The West Chester and Philadelphia Railroad (WC&P) built the other portion between 1852 and 1858, a 26 miles (42 km) line from Philadelphia to West Chester. In 1880 the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad (PWB; a PRR subsidiary) purchased the West Chester and Philadelphia Railroad, and in 1881 the WC&P was consolidated into the Philadelphia and Baltimore Central Railroad. The PRR acquired the West Chester Railroad in 1903.
